It is funny how life works… Brad started his new job today on 1st of June. I started my old job in a new location on the same day. We both had a great first day!
The shop is finally done after many days and nights of long hours. I am truly grateful for my friends, my parents, and my partner. It takes so much planning, time, and resources for this to happen. I could not have done this without their support. Thank you so much for allowing me to follow my dreams.
The shop is finally opened for business today.
This long coffee table was the old platform for the front window for our Alberta old space. It is a recycled walnut wood piece. We could not imagined cutting up the piece to fit the new front window. We just added legs and converted to a table. Perfect solution.
When we did our build out. We really wanted to utilized the concept of sustainability. All the shelves are recycled old barn wood beams from outside Scappose.
First window in the new space. The girls are doing construction and wall painting work. The props were found easily. Since that is what we have been doing for the last two weeks. Jenny Yuen handbag on paint cans.
I have always loved the idea of pattern on pattern. The Ikat printed chair to the left is a great match for my other patterned chair. Extra room for people to sit and hang out. The dressing room walls are antique Japanese screen doors. Another round coffee table in the middle is an old carved wood from Kenya. I was lucky enough to find a new counter from a cute beautiful boutique on Mississippi, Amalee. It was constructed by the same artist that did our shelves, Jason Olcott. The counter frame was an old vintage door from Rebuilding center. The top is granite. Again I love the idea of mixing the modern with the global influence.
I am delighted that we found an exquisite home for our little IDOM. Please come by and visit us. Our new address is 827 NW 23rd street, between Johnson and Kearney. We are open everyday Monday through Saturday 11 am until 6 pm and Sunday 11 am until 5 pm. Hope to see you soon.
